Windows 10: Something's Odd Is Happening

    Something's Odd Is Happening

    I have Windows 10 Home 64bit operating system installed on my desktop computer.
    Recently, I downloaded Mozilla Firefox version 52.0.2 (64bit) on my computer and was successful because I have tried many times before without success.
    However, my elation was short-lived as the browser reverted to the 32bit version by itself!
    This is very odd.
    Is there any way to overcome this and has anyone experienced the same problem?
    Thank you.

    Because you have not gotten an answer on this post, you cannot start another post. You need to start in Extended Startup mode.

    FF v. 53.0 also installs as 32 bit. Works fine, like a lot of other 32 bit apps I have.
